The iPhone maker is one of the few companies who have for long, refrained itself from advertising and promoting its products and services on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Though with the recent explosion of social networking services, it seems even Apple couldn’t resist the temptation to make its presence felt on social media.
The company has recently taken steps to focus on social media, with the launch of @AppleSupport earlier this year. Moreover, the company also has regional accounts which focus on promoting iTunes and App Store releases. Besides, Apple also has another account, @AppleNews, registered last year which curates fresh content from the Apple News iOS App.
Apple has already sent out media invites for its September 7 event. The company will live stream its keynote presentation from the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco which starts 10 a.m Pacific Time. The company is expected to launch the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus or Pro. Besides new iPhones, the Cupertino giant is also expected to launch the next-gen Apple Watch, which could simply be called the iWatch. In addition, Apple is also expected to announce a refreshed MacBook Pro lineup. Also rumored to debut is the new headphone range which the company promotes under the Beats brand.
